    Mike, I havn´t solved it yet. Hope Uapac will have it on the market soon.
    Otherwise I´ll try something else. Ive now seen some roofs with the alu strip but im not sure I like that one.

    Its great to see your coupe moving under its own stream, I'm loving that roadster! Are there any more pics of it? Build thread maybe?

    Martin,if you do decide to do the Bonneville experience,you might think about the I 70 or I 80 route.I think you'll find it a lot cooler on those routes .(although still pretty warm)If you do come up to I 70 ,we have a group of rods that run up together.We camp above the bend

    Tomas build the roadster as a normal T-bucket some 25 years ago. After the bucket I think he has made two different body's and this third one that he works on now is top notch.
    Its totaly made and shaped by himself.
    Check out this flow :)

    Tomas has been working on the body for weeks like crazy and today he laid the epoxy and filler. A big step and not that far away till final paint :)

    To keep the factory dot welds on the drip rails visible after final paint he masked it before the coat of filler.
    I Like it !

    I Like it ! I was thinking when I saw the picture ''If it gets to the per perfect finish ,it will look fake. '' This is super cool.

    Wow Martin what an incredible build. I can't wait to see it finished and I hope I get the chance to see it in person when you come to the USA. Thank you for sharing the progress with us.

    What a fantastic and creative build! 10 times more than those million dollar HR feature cars ever had.

    Got the car back after Tomas did the Paintjob and im stunned.

    First thing I did was to make a new roof insert with the english wheel and also made a bunch of brackets underneath to screw it in the wood. the brackets got obround holes and that makes it possible to adjust the roof-hight when mounting.

    Now its time for the interior, the guy who helped me with the bench is doin it allover again as I made a big color choice mistake.

    Lebaron Bonney is helping me out with the Headliner.

    The floor and panels is something Ill try by myself so I just borrowed a stitch machine and this is my first try on a french stitch. Must say Im a little proud of it.

    Wow, very nice, at one point over here 'guide coat' was nearly as cool as matte black,
    It really looks good without paint, can't wait to see it in colour!!
